Leaders are at the heart of our vision to see local churches changing nations. Leaders in ministry, in the workplace and in the community. Leaders who have a passion to see our communities and our culture renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Leaders who want to be part of something bigger. 

Holding our Leadership Conference at four locations across England allows us to better enable leaders to build the Kingdom of God together under a common regional identity within their local community. We encourage you and your teams to book on and join us for what promises to be a significant week in the life of the New Wine family. Together we will encounter God for ourselves, be challenged by both God’s word and impactful leadership principles, and spend time together with our teams and other leaders. 

With keynote sessions from Steve Uppal addressing both signs and wonders in today's ministry and the practical realities of supporting community transformation, our Leicester event promises three days of informative and innovative teaching to resource you and your team.

Hosted by our Regional Director for the Midlands & East Rob Bewley, alongside National Director Paul Harcourt, the programme will also be tailored to local needs and cover both national and regional strategies.

Bishop Jill Duff will be leading a session on church planting, and will join the panel for our Q&A session.

For all four venues around the country, as well as space for regional networking and central to every New Wine event, there will be dedicated times of sung worship and prayer ministry.
